Biscuits 1035 Broad Ripple Ave.

I try to meet my friend Joey for at lunch at least once a year. If it is a great year I also get together with her whole family for brunch. Well this year we were actually able to meet for lunch. Of course we could meet more often if it weren’t for that pesky job of hers. Any way we met at Biscuits in Broad Ripple. It has a huge menu featuring both Mexican and American foods. We both opted for ala carte from their Mexican menu.

We each ordered 2 Al Pastor tacos. They were excellent tacos. Full of meat and flavor with small cubes of pineapple tossed in. They were 3 bucks each and I could eat these all day. I also got a side of their mole but the tacos didn’t really need any embellishment.

The mole may have been a bit sweet but it did have a nice depth and a touch of heat on the back end. Turned out to be a good accompaniment to my tamales.

We also wanted to try their tamales. Two for me and one for her. All they had left were chicken and they were very different to what I am used to. I don’t think I have ever had a tamale that did not come with the filling dressed in a chile sauce. These had naked pulled chicken and were covered with queso. I like cheese sauce but I would prefer a chile in with the meat. These were a bit bland.

I did not like these nearly as much as the tacos. I think Joey though the same since she ate one or 2 bites and left it. She ate both her tacos and remarked how good they were.

Pat and I reviewed this joint some time ago and tried the Americn menu and liked it so now I know the Mexican menu is done equally as well. As in most cases it isn’t always about the food often it is about the company, Thanks for meeting me for lunch Joey. I just wish it could be more often. You do too much young lady. Take the time for some afternoon tacos and cerveza.

  1. Have fun to get another partner for the day. It is interesting how very different moles can be, and how alluring.

    • I know. They are all intricate and time consuming and worth every minute.

    Always good to see you!
    I didn’t care for their mole. I was down for the queso on my tamaled, but not the chicken, little too bland. Kinda wanna try a beef tamale with the cheese.
    LOVE THEIR TACOS! LOVE!
